  • "On arrival at Vintner's cottage we proceeded to use the upstairs bathroom my partner was upstairs and I was downstairs in the kitchen after a short time water started coming through the beams in the kitchen, we reported it and were told not to use the upstairs bathroom again."

    We slept downstairs or tried to, the outside of the downstairs bedroom was made of wood and on that evening and the next evening 23rd & 24th Dec 2023 it was very windy and raining it was impossible to sleep because of the noise. We left on Christmas evening our Christmas stay was a disaster.

    We are very sorry that this happened. Unfortunately, as it was the Christmas period we were unable to get this fixed during your stay. Through Sykes we offered alternative accomodation close by, but as you wanted to stay in the Cottage we provided a partial refund in compensation for the fact that the upstairs bathroom couldn't be used during your stay. The problem with the bathroom has now been fully fixed. Property Owner

  • "The property was everything we hoped it would be."

    The cottage was comfortable and peaceful. The kitchen well stocked with equipment. There is an enclosed rear garden - perfect for my small dog. I have no hesitation in recommending the cottage.

  • "The house was really lovely and it was great having the private garden to sit in too."

    We had a great stay thanks and managed well without a car. But it would have been useful to have, in the house, information about the excellent local minibus service that runs round the villages in the area as well as into Acle (for connections to Norwich and London) and Wroxham (for Broads boat tours and to shop in the amazing Roy's).

  • "The cottage was great."

    There was a bit of an issue with the bath and the hot water but the owner sorted it promptly and kept us very well informed of the arrangements etc.

  • "We enjoyed staying in this little cottage for a few days while visiting family."

    We loved the garden view from the downstairs bedroom. The beds and living room furniture were very comfortable and the place was spotlessly clean. The long narrow garden was lovely, and secure for our little dog. Nice supply of board games, and a small pool table in the garden room at the end of the garden that would be great to spend time if the weather had been poor. The only downside was that the taller members of our group learned the hard way to mind their heads going through doorways! Freethorpe is a nice little village in glorious Norfolk countryside.

  • "Lovely cottage in the quiet village of Freethorpe."

    I chose this property for the downstairs on suite for my elderly mother. There are a few small steps throughout the ground floor but we’ were advised and were not a problem. The beds were extremely comfortable. The tv was intermittent but I’m guessing that was just the area as the Wi-Fi worked well. My biggest challenge was trying to work the blind in the living room. Which I never mastered. If you’re looking for peace and quiet then Freethorpe is the ideal place. Easy access in the car to pubs, restaurants and shops.

  • "Lovely cottage, all the amenities."

    The only thing that let the experience down for us was there was a big dog that lives next door that barked alot! Our little Frenchie was scared and wasn’t keen to go out in the garden when the dog next door started barking. It also woke my husband at 7am a couple of mornings.

  • "Lovely area."

    Very flat so do expect blustery days. Cottage is well fitted out and stocked, but sadly no microwave oven so no quick snacks. We used the log burner only on our first day . We could not see the flames due to build up of soot on the inside of the glass door. We both noticed a faint smell of wood smoke in the kitchen in the evening's during the week we presumed this from adjacent property but this did not detract from our stay but should be looked at. As there's no TV aerial fitted so you need to rely on Wifi to watch any program's but using your own account. Unfortunately you lose the benefits of wifi at around tea time when village usage exceeds wifi capacity. The main point we would reiterate from the write up is the bedroom access stairs. The access upstairs to the bedroom and raised bath are definitely not for the old or infirm. The down stairs bedroom which is built in an insulated wooden extension was cold even with the heating on on frosty nights . There is only enough room to just to walk around the bed so there's is no room for hanging space for clothes. The rear garden needed attention and maintenace but it was early in the season. A visitor book leave helpful comments would have been nice addition. None of the above really detracted from our holiday and not enough to contact the owners durning our break. Hope this is helpful.
